ab: Summary: The aim of this chapter is to offer an overview of a series of
studies conducted at the University of Cyprus, regarding the definition
and identification of mathematically gifted students, the relation
between mathematical creativity, practical and analytical abilities, as
well as the relation between giftedness, creativity and other cognitive
factors such as, intelligence and cognitive styles. During our research
in the field of giftedness and creativity we developed material for
nurturing primary school mathematically gifted students and also
explored the possibilities that technology may offer in the development
of mathematical creativity. Although our research is still evolving,
this chapter offers a glimpse of some of our most important findings.
